One of the most talented actresses of Bollywood and National Award winner Tabu will be honored at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles in April.
Announcing the lineup of films and the other activities of the festival, Christina Marouda, IFFLA Executive Director, said in a statement: “We have been discussing honoring Tabu for a long time, and this year felt like the right time. Her work and personality embody everything that IFFLA is about — being fearless, versatile, independent in spirit, unwilling to compromise, brilliant in the range of her performances, and simply beautiful.”
“With half of the festival’s 2019 lineup directed by female filmmakers, this couldn’t be a stronger celebration of women in Indian cinema,” he said.
Tabu’s last film ‘Andhadhun’ will be the opening film of the festival, while other female filmmakers’ work will also be showcased on the occasion. Several features, shorts and documentaries films will be shown in nine languages at the event.
The short film “Maya” will also be screened at the festival, which features Kirti Kulhari and Naveen Kasturia.
The 17th edition of the festival will be held from April 11 to April 14 in Los Angeles at Regal L.A. LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center.
